It’s the classic Disney-esque formula: the underdog is introduced, the underdog goes through some sort of epic fail moment, the underdog's natural talent is heavily hindered by unalterable circumstances and bullies, then an epiphany builds up to the big climax (almost always in the form of a big match) which starts of a losing battle that is won… and then concluded with a summary of lessons learned, and, of course, a happy ending.
